Slow Down, Brother

Amsterdam, always good to be back! It had been a while since our last visit. The last time we visited was even before the start of this whole pandemic. And because of that pandemic, tourism has been slow. Which was clearly visible in Amsterdam as well. There were hardly any tourists in the city.

Open Campus Day

On May 19th there was an Open Campus Day at PVH. PVH owns brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein. It’s also the place where Adri works.

First Kinderdijk. Once again we were back. Enjoying a walk and watching windmills.
